dead on Lisa!
Certainly don't feel one has to feel guilty.
I'm sure there are great art teachers that are non-artists or
non-practicing artists. What thrills me in particular is to attempt to
give a young person an insight that causes a break through for that
student. An insight that were I not an artist, I perhaps might not have
possessed to give. Since part of my desire is to develop their
potential...I find that an asset for my teaching.
But....I'm sure confidence has its disadvantages too, because I may not be
as likely to pursue diverse optional educational strategies given I think I
already have a handle on it. For that possibility, I have to pay more
attention or be on my guard! For very good reasons then....we all need
each other to grow, and the students will be the beneficiaries!
